We’re looking for an intern. Not just any intern will do. We want someone who is spirited, creative, driven, social media-savvy. And dead.
The Copeland Zombie Internship Contest
Copeland has a bit of a reputation for being a zombie-friendly place to work. So we’re having a competition to find the right intern using rotting, flesh-eating corpses as the creative theme.
We get enough resumes and cover letters. We want someone who understands the principles of selling and advertising. That’s our business! So we invite you to make your case anyway you like as long as the shambling grey guys with the bloody mouths figure into it.
The winner will be invited to be a non-paid intern at Copeland (with flexible work hours). We ask for 25 hours of your time minimum per week. Starting date is as soon as possible after the winner is notified. Duration of the internship is negotiable but no less than 2 months please.
As an intern, we will teach you what we know about the business. You can pick our brains, be in strategic and creative brainstorms, meet clients, help solve problems and participate fully in our cultural life. You are here to learn.
Our last two unpaid interns went directly to agency jobs. It’s a good thing to have on your resume and a great education in the biz. We may even hire you ourselves.
Or eat you, as internal food supplies dictate.
The contest is open to anyone. You can submit your case through any channel: email, video, social media, traditional media. It’s entirely up to you.
The contest closes March 14, 2011.
Oh one more thing. To be absolutely clear: those amped up things in 28 Days Later and REC that chase you and vomit blood in your face? They are not zombies. They are infected with Rage. You need to know the difference.
FOLLOW-UP NOTE: Our selected interns qualify for a generous honorarium to be paid at the completion of the internship,
